IN ORDER TO START 2022 OFF WITH A BIT OF TRUCKING CONTROVERSERY YOUR HOSTS RICO MUHAMMAD AND CHUCK SNOW ARE GOING TO START THE YEAR OFF WITH A 90 MINUTE SHOW DEDICATED TO DISCUSSING THE TOPIC OF  DRIVER INC. 

DRIVER INC IS A SIZZLING HOT TOPIC ESPECIALLY IN CANADA WHERE SOME SMALL AND MID SIZED MOTOR CARRIERS ARE CIRUMVENTING CURRENT LABOR LAWS BY PAYING THEIR COMPANY DRIVERS AS CONTRACTORS. THEY ARE HAVING THEIR COMPANY DRIVERS INCORPORATE AND PAYING THEM DIRECTLY TO THEIR CORPORATIONS THUS NOT MAKING THE NECESSARY PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS AS WELL AS CONTRIBUTIONS SUCH AS INCOME TAX,UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE, CANADA PENSION AND WORKERS COMPENSATION. IN MANY CASES THIS MEANS THAT IF ONE OF THESE COMPANY INC DRIVERS IS INJURED THERE IS NO ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE TO THEM.  MUCH TO THE DISMAY OF THE VAST MAJORITY OF FLEET OWNERS THE AUTHORITIES HAVE BEEN REMISS IN  THEIR OBLIGATION OF ENFORCING THE LAW WHICH MAKES FOR A VERY UNEVEN PLAYING FIELD. . WE HAVE A PANEL OF EXPERTS JOINING US TO DISCUSS THIS INCLUDING RENOWN LABOR JOURNALIST SARA MOJTEHEDZADEH OF THE TORONTO STAR, JASON BEHOO LABOR LAWYER AND PARTNER OF DUNTRUNE LAW AND OUR FRIEND BRUCE OUTBRIDGE  CREATOR OF THE LEAD PEDAL PODCAST  TO LISTEN LIVE DIAL 1-563-999-3508 PRESS 1 IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION
